bill: caution, you are about to enter not spin zone. the factor begins right now. [captioning made possible by fox news channel] captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight did you know the associated press, america's largest news wire service used 11 reporters to check the accuracy of sarah palin's new book, going rogue? 11. barack obama has had two best selling books. the a.p. did not fact-check either one. spokesman says that's because then senator obama wasn't a major player when his books came out. each when you believe that flimsy excuse, once he did become a presidential contender, shouldn't the a.p. have then fact-checked his books? now i know i am beating a dead industry here but the blatant
left-wing bias of the american press has reached critical mass and simply out of control. even if you don't like sarah palin you know she has been treated unfairly by the media. shouldn't be happening in america. and that's the memo. now for the top stories tonight, governor palin and public policy. we begin with president obama. >> president obama, somebody asked you to give him a grade you gave him a 4 out of 10. >> what do you rate president obama? >> a 4. i think there are a lot of decisions being made that probably i and the majority of americans are not impressed with right now. bill: so you think he is not doing a good job? >> no. i think in the two areas that i am most concerned about, national security, there is some questionable actions that he has taken so recently that i believe weakens our country and our security. bill: what is he doing wrong? >> gitmo. we decide we are going to close gitmo without a security plan? we're going to bring mohammed over here and we are going to create this circus atmosphere here in new york and try this
terrorist in our court system that is reserved under our constitution for american citizens to be able to have their rights exercised. bill: ok. so gitmo and khalid sheikh mohammed are mistakes and i agree on both of them. i put them, if you had to close guantanamo bay for p.r. purposes, which is what their argument is, i would put them in alaska. put them away up in alaska. build a prison up there way away from everybody and see how they like it up there. >> you know, we do have a vacated base up there, but, hey, let's hear what alaskans would have to say about that? bill: bring them on up. guantanamo bay cuba 88? minus 15. barack obama a socialist? >> scares me the road he has us on. not seeming to understand what it is that has built up america's economic system. the free enterprise principles, the shrink damage of government
not the expansion to allow the private sector to grow and to thrive families earn so they can reinvest and prioritize instead of the government doing it for them which is a step towards socialism. some of the steps we are taking economically right now scare the heck out of me. >> do you think that he wants to change the country into an entitlement society? >> we're going to see, depending on his cap and tax bill that he will no doubt support coming out of congress, that the health care bill, whatever that is going to cost us and whatever the answers are there to all of our questions about the health care, we are going to see if he decides that he can kind of shift gears, change course, and move us back to more of the free enterprise, free market principles that built up this country then my answer is going to be no, he is not hell bent on changing the cappist society that we are. but, if he is stubborn about, this then my answer to you is going to be actions are louder
than our words then, yes, is he going to change our capitalistic society. bill: have you ever talked to obama? have you ever talked to him to exextent. >> not to i extent. i met him twice. bill: do you think he is smart? >> i think he is very smart. >> do you think he is honest? >> i think that he has -- he has told us some things in the campaign. i think that he has told us some things early on in his presidency that have not come to fruition. he was all about positive change and i, and i think a lot of americans, are believing that the change that he is ushering in isn't necessarily positive. bill: he says it is. you are a conservative so you don't like it. >> positive in terms of creating debt for our children? bill: you know what the arguments are. he says that, look, a lot of americans can't afford health insurance. the health insurance companies are under control. i have got to get them under
control. that's why i'm doing what i'm doing. >> let's get the health care problems under control then. let's use free market results oriented patient-centered solutions to do that tort reform? he is not embracing any of those ideas. getting rid of the waste and fraud that he insists today. if we would just get a handle on that. bill: he says he is going to get rid of waste and fraud. >> let's do it now then. bill: one of the amazing parts of the book for me is you wanted to do the reverend wright dance. you wanted to get him up there and ram it down barack obama's throat. why? >> well, i believe it is not negative campaigning or off-base to call someone out on their associations and reverend wright was a close associate of barack obama's for 20 years. >> what's wrong with reverend wright? >> any reverend who would say god damn america. there is something wrong with him and his beliefs. >> bill: do you believe barack obama when he said he didn't know reverend wright was that radical? do you believe him?
>> over 20 years of being in the pew of reverend wright's church, surely you would think there would have been something spewed from the pulpit that didn't quite sound right for america. over 20 years. maybe he just happened to miss those particular sermons. bill: you look a little skeptical. >> i don't know. my point is in the campaign i wanted to talk about the associations and the past voting record, too. and the experience, the 150 days in the u.s. senate. building foundation of experience. i wanted to talk about things like that. but we didn't. and i think that there was some unfairness there again to the electorate. bill: again, i'm sitting there and i'm going they told you not to bring up reverend wright because mccain didn't want to do it. you said to them, what? >> well, i said that i would want to talk about it. bill: but you didn't make it a crushing point. see, i think i would have maybe grabbed mccain's tie and pulled him over and said you have got to do this. >> you know what we did?
i'm going to give mccain some respect on this one, too. what i did in the rallies and up there at a podium, i put it, this empowerment in the hands of the voters, of the people who were there and were watching. and i said, it's not off base to call a candidate out on their record and their associations and it's not negative campaigning. in other words, hey, you guys, if we are not going to do it. voters, you do it. >> it's stunning that you wanted to do it and the mccain people said you couldn't do it and, you know, that might have it, particularly in places like pennsylvania, made a difference because reverend wright obvious slay very controversial guy. one more question about president obama. a lot of people are very nervous about him now. he is not having a good time in the white house now. you pointed out his lack of experience. you don't have that much experience. you walked away from the governorship after, what, two years, two and a half years? >> going into my lame duck
session, my fourth legislative session, deciding i wasn't going to run again and not wanting to put alaskans through a lame duck session. >> bill: is it fair for you to criticize obama's experience when somebody could say the same thing but on the national stage. >> if you are talking about executive experience, i would put my experience up against his any day of the week. i have been elected to local office since 1992 and was a city manager, strong mayor form of government. was a chief executive of the state. was an oil and gas regulator. there was some good experience there that could have been put to use in a vice presidential ticket. we have to remember, too, i wasn't running for president. bill: that's the key question because john mccain is up there in years. you had to be qualified to take that office over. >> right. but i'm saying i was running for vice president, just like joe biden running for vice president. i never once heard you or anybody else question joe biden and his experience.
bill: he has got a lot of experience. let me be very bold and fresh again. do you believe that you are smart enough, incisive enough, intellectual enough to handle the most powerful job in the world? >> i believe that i am because i have common sense and i have, i believe, the values that are reflective of so many other american values values and i from the kind of spineless -- a spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with some kind of elite ivy league education and a fat resume that's based on anything but hard work and private sector free enterprise principles. americans could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership. i'm not saying that that has to be me. bill: well, after speaking with
governor palin, i do believe she has future political ambitions. as always, i could be wrong. grave threats against america, including iran. governor palin will address those threats after these messages. remember that one gift. the one we wrote letters asking for. and finished all our vegetables for.
>> sarah palin is called upon in 2012 to run for president, whether it be in the republican party or an independent party. i'm going to interview then and i'm going to say, look, iran is this far away from getting a nuclear weapon, this far away. how are you going to stop them? >> let's start considering the tanks sanctions that we should have been applying already, especially in this past year. let's start looking at cutting off their imports of refined petroleum products. >> does that mean a naval blockade? >> we need to be willing to do such a thing and discuss it with our allies and working closely with france and britain, our other allies. >> they are already on board. >> they are on board with what though? >> they're on board with economic sanctions against iran. do you know the country that isn't on board that's causing all the trouble here? >> well, we have to question russia's commitment to all of this. bill: excellent. russia is the problem. russia will not stop gas going
in, the embargo means nothing. putin is saying, look, i'm not helping you out unless you give me a sphere of influence in europe and sarah palin says what? >> we need to send that message that we are the super power of the world. bill: how do you do that? >> by working close whether i our other allies also. bill: he doesn't care. >> he has got to care because he has got relationships with these other countries, also. we have to show the support for -- each one of our of a lies. with israel. we cannot get into israel, for instance, and say we're going to tell you whether the jewish community can expand or not expand within your borders. instead, what we need to do is tell israel that we will go to bat for them. bill: what does that mean? say netanyahu says -- calls you up and says, look, i'm bombing them. i'm bombing iran. they are too close. i'm not going to let it happen. what do you say? go ahead, netanyahu? go bomb them? what do you say. >> any kind of war strike is the absolute last option. bill: you say no but he is saying to you, you guys aren't
going to be able to stop them. >> that's why we cannot let the world get to the place that you are talking about right now. bill: we are already there. >> no. we are not. we are not quite there yet. there is still hope. we have to exert the pressure that america can put on our allies and on those who are not so friendly. bill: why isn't obama doing all of that. >> is he bowing to world leaders that i think any other president. bill: do you mean that literally the japanese emperor. >> i mean that literally. bill: do you think that obama is weak abroad. >> i believe obama's approach to diplomacy is not what history has shown us works. what works, in my mind, reading the history books, is what reagan did. that was to let the rest of the world know that america can be independent, in a sense, and that we have the resources so that he we won't be reliant on other countries to feed us. what reagan was d. was the right thing. he boiled it all down to this. he looked at our enemies around
the world and he said we win, you lose. that's what i want to see and feel and hear from our new administration, from president obama. bill: but that's what bush did and it got him into all kinds of trouble because the world didn't like the bush doctrine, unilateral action. ok? he crippled al qaeda. bush crippled al qaeda. but, in the process, got us bogged down in iraq. and got world opinion against the u.s.a. >> president bush and his policies kept our homeland safe for those years after 9/11. bill: no doubt. >> and i think we need to learn from some of the policies that he implemented there, too. i would like to see president obama acknowledge that bush was successful in that arena. bill: he is never going to do that. >> what i would like it see is a shift from this 9/10 policy that it seems that obama, perhaps, is embracing and we start looking more at the 9:12 policies. bill: that's what you would do? >> that's what i would do. bill: but obama isn't going to
do that unless he is forced to do it. afghanistan. the u.s. ambassador says don't send in the 40,000 troops. this is such a corrupt place. obama doesn't really know what to do at this point. we think he is going to send some troops in. but he has been, what, 16, 17 weeks now. a lot of people think you cannot win in afghanistan. you can no, ma'am impose democracy on that nation. >> it's going to be tough. but iraq was tough, too. when that surge strategy was finally implemented, we started to see the victorious steps taken there in iraq. repeat that in afghanistan. conditions are different, geographical conditions are different but obama asked back in march a new strategy. mcchrystal then found the strategy and now all these months later obama still hasn't been able to make up his mind. in terms of our commitment to victory in afghanistan. >> do you think it's possible for victory in afghanistan? >> i do. it has to be. we have got to be victorious in
afghanistan. what is al qaeda's goal? growing those terrorist cells so they can come and destroy america. that's what al qaeda is for. bill: if you have a corrupt afghan government that the people don't no matter how many troops you send in there karzai government corrupt people. >> karzai is an imperfect leader. every world leader is. we need to be working with him. we have no choice. we have got to win in afghanistan. we have to send in the reinforcements. and i say this as a mom of an infantry man who could ultimately end up over there which scares me. of course i know that for the future of our world, we have got to get rid of the terrorists over there and not allow those cells to grow. bill: on that note the al qaeda leadership is still hiding in afghanistan, do you go in and get them?
>> there is some encouraging steps taken there in pakistan where internally they are cracking down on the terrorists within. that's some progress that we had been hoping for for quite some time. that's encouraging. bill: china. we can't do anything to china because they prop up our economy. they yelled at obama when he went over there. the u.s. dollar going down the drain. are you comfortable with china owning a trillion dollars with u.s. currency? are you comfortable with that? >> i'm not comfortable with u.s. policy today that is allowing china to own so much of america. bill: free enterprise. they have the money. they can buy it. >> what isn't write about this though is that we're continuing to grow our debt, continuing to allow this situation that we're in where we are beholden to china and to others. we can't look at china and be blaming them right now for the problems that we're causing ourselves by spending too much money and growing government. bill: now, on monday, sarah palin will tell us whether she
will lead a populace movement in america. perhaps a third party in 2012. also, we would like to you vote in our bill o'reilly.com poll. we are asking to you grade the sarah palin interview from a to f. we will give you the results on tuesday. so please help us out there. directly ahead reaction from a liberal woman to what sarah palin said in the interviews. later, glenn beck has some financial advice for us. can't wait to hear it upcoming. x
so, you give her a grade so far. we are asking people to do that on bill o'reilly.com. a to f. grade the interview so far. >> well, i have to say i'm going to give you a b for asking questions that weren't about levi and bristol and her family and her husband. i would have to say for her, oh, i don't want to be mean but, bill, i wouldn't give her high points because i felt in true politician form she dodged almost every question that you answered her -- asked her when she was answering you. she wasn't be specific with her answers and she wasn't giving alternatives to what our current president is doing. bill: i didn't get the feeling she was dodging. i thought she engaged the questions. you may not like the answer. give me one question you think she dodged. >> well, i think she dodged iran, for example. first of all, it frightened me that she didn't seem to know that france and great britain were on board with sanctions against iran. i'm glad she knew that russia was the problem. i have to say i agree with you on putin in afghanistan.
i didn't hear an alternative. i didn't hear a plan from someone that, perhaps, might be running for and looking to me and others in america to be elected leader of the free world to. lead this nation. >> you thought she was too general. ok, i think that's a valid criticism. but nobody else has any idea, and i'm not making any excuse for the governor. but i haven't heard -- look, obama doesn't have any solution in afghanistan. evidence doesn't have any solution to iran. source, to be fair, if you are going to say governor palin didn't have any solution, our president of the united states doesn't have any solution. so, i don't know what the beef is, other than maybe sarah palin should have one but, you know, what say you? obama doesn't have one. >> well, i think, for me at least, and i think a lot of americans agree with me, certainly many will disagree with me, too. we have to have something more concrete. outlandish but people say pay off the taliban in afghanistan. bill: the most specific policy possible to win in afghanistan and to prevent a nuclear iran.
but we don't. so it's not just -- and, again, i sound like i'm making excuses for governor palin. i'm not. buff i felt she was conversant with the issues. a lot of people didn't feel she was conversant. i felt she was conversant with them. that she knew what the problems were. you are right, she didn't say, look -- because i handed her the blockade, the naval blockade, which is eventually what you are going to have to do there. you will either have to bomb the hell out of them or put a naval blockade in. one or the other. all right. one more specific criticism of the interview, leslie. go. >> well, when you asked her and i'm glad you did, point blank, do you feel that, you know, you're capable of being president of the united states she said yes and her answer to the why of that was, one, she is common sense. bill: right. >> two, she reflects the values many americans have. and, three, she thinks americans are tired of elitists. this woman has 5-million-dollar book deal before one book is
sold. this woman spent nearly $800 a night on hotel rooms and 20,000 plus to move her family around. this woman also left the throne of governor in alaska, would she bail on us in tough times for the bigger and better deal? i thought it was hypocritical. i think it. bill: there is nothing wrong with earning money. she is doing it legitimately. she had enormous amount of debt, 500,000 piled up by people. look, leslie we had you on the program because we wanted to hear what you had to say. we appreciate it some new information about the guy who killed 14 people at fort hood. geraldo has been investigating that glenn beck on the 9/12 project. what the heck is the 9/12 project? we hope you stay tuned to those reports. what's our favorite part of honey bunches of oats?
the sparkly flakes. the honey-baked bunches! the magic's in the mix. my favorite part? eating it. honey bunches of oats. taste the joy we put in every spoonful. we call the bunches in honey bunches of oats the prize in the box. well, now there's a prize inside the prize. pecans! pecans! baked into crunchy oat bunches. taste the delicious surprise in every spoonful. new honey bunches of oats with pecan bunches. beautiful. bill: new information about major nidal malik hasan who
assassinated 14 innocent people in fort hood, texas. geraldo rivera is looking into the situation. we have some aides deal. more clarification on al qaeda? what's the lead on it. >> tomorrow major nidal hasan goes before his first hearing. it will be a hearing in his hospital room to determine whether or not he should be held in pre-trial detention as opposed to in the -- bill: of course he should. is he still paralyzed. >> the fact of the matter he is still conscience and is he paralyzed. you have a very interesting beginning of what will be a very fascinating saga result in 13 convictions first tree homicide and his execution. bill: military is going to try him. executed he will be shot. >> he will be the fellow who killed 5 g. gis in iraq and the fellow in 2003 -- i believe they
will eventually kill him. i may be wrong about the guy in may. the guy in 2003 he is sentenced to die. hasan certainly will be. in so far as what we know of his background, he seems like, you know, the self-loathing spree killers who say one thing and do another. he was frequenting strip joints, hasan was in the days and weeks leading up to his of his shooting spree, mass murder. he was paranoid, apparently that he had aids. he was collecting all antiviral, anti-aids drugs in his town. bill: maybe he did have aids. >> as far as i know, they have not yet diagnosed that or released it yet. here you have a guy who is professing to al lackey the radical muslim cleric that he want to meet him in heaven, a u.s. born radical islamic cleric, he tells him he wants to meet him in heaven and he want to forward the ideals that they
hold mutually at the same time is he going to some sleazy strip joint and he is worried that he has aids. typical self-loathing, a lack of self-esteem. bill: wouldn't it be amazing if he did have it. wouldn't it be amazing if he did have aids? that's how weird it is. in the medicine in his house. abc saw it. ok. then, we learn that the guy donated a ton of money, about 50,000 to overseas islamic charities. >> of all of the controversial things in his dose i think that is probably least significant. there are a lot of innocent muslims in america donating to islamic charity. bill: 50 scamplet big number. he is making 90. >> it's over the years. far more interesting is what we knew about hasan now that the emails have been leaked. and it is very clear that at least two joint terrorism task forces led by the fbi examined
his emails with alwaki. bill: left him there. >> secretary of defense gates has now gotten the former army secretary and clark to head a 45 day investigation in which they will determine who knew about hasan's radical behavior, his dissent into radical thoughts and why didn't they react. bill: geraldo, everybody, see you on the weekend. thank you. glenn beck has some financial advice for us and also explain the 9/12 project. what's the 9/12 project? beck is next.
i have to keep winding myself up to deal with the sadness, the loss of interest, the trouble concentrating, the lack of energy. if depression is taking so much out of you, ask your doctor about pristiq®.

helping to treat my depression. (announcer) ask your doctor about pristiq. bill: thanks for staying with us. i'm bill o'reilly in the at your beck and call segment tonight our pal glenn is running around crazy. we had to tape an interview with him earlier this week. is he hopped up about the 9/12 project and money. roll the tape. the 9/12 project sounds like something out of the strain or aliens. what is the 9/12 project? >> hello, howell. the 9/12 project is the nine principles and 12 values. i can't remember.
bill: something like that? >> the things that i think we all experienced on 9/12. 9/11 we were all fearful. 9/12 we didn't have the government tell us to be good to each other, take care of each other. to live. bill: you want to recapture the moments after 9/11 how people genuinely acted. >> america is great because america is good. bill: so america comes together after 9/11, when it did. ok? rallies behind the president, and then action is taken to defeat al qaeda. >> wait. i don't mean it. it's not a political thing. it is not a political thing. you can -- the 9/12 project and i don't lead it. i started it. there is no leader. it is up to you. it's up to their own, you know, districts and it is what they want to make out of it their average every day schmo. so my belief is it should never endorse a candidate. i don't endorse candidates. bill: if there is no leader and there is no basic thrust to what
you do, people just going to sit around and say here we are at the 9/12 project? >> it's amazing. they do an awful lot of things. bill: who is they? little chapters? >> chapters around the country, yes. they are doug hoffman credits them for giving him any kind of life. i mean, he was 2,000 votes away from being elected with both a republican and democrat. bill: this suspect in new york state. they do get involved in their own local level. i am, tomorrow, announcing i'm at the villages in florida. bill: the villages. are you going to drive around in one of those little carts. >> did i that last time i was there. i was lost for about an hour. i'm book tour this week. bill: book tour? >> yeah. but in the villages, at 3:00 tomorrow afternoon, i'm actually announcing the plan as i call it. it is a multi-level plan to -- because, bill, i'm watching television. because i just got out of surgery two weeks ago. and i was watching television. and i think i was watching

anointed oprah's successor. thank you, oprah. bill: i have the best dumb thing not only today but maybe in the last year. remember my interview with barney frank. barney and i went at it when barney said he wasn't responsible for the collapse of fannie mae and freddie mac when he had said in public that they were fine going forward. i, of course, called him a bunch of names. i'm like the tennessee titan guy. somebody mocked that interview by using monkeys. roll the tape. bill: all right. that's swell but you still went out in july and said everything was great and off that a lot of people bought stock and lost everything they had. >> no. bill: oh yes, oh yes. don't give me any of that we just heard the words. what are you? you didn't say that you? want me to play it again for you? i listened to every word you said. you said -- you said going forward we are going to be swell. stop the b.s. here. stop the crap. [ laughter ]
bill: i got to get a hat number one like that monkey has and i will wear it on the program on monday. and, number two, that was fabulous. was that not fabulous, gutfeld? >> i have to say barney frank never looked so good. and i want your sport coat. that is the greatest sports coat. bill: that is a -- but the hat. >> you look like one of those old newsies, extra, extra, here is your paper. bill: as a woman in the world you could not resist a man wearing a hat like that. >> hat escapees, brad pitt like. bill: who looked. >> hotter? bill: dumber me or frank. >> bank from frank, of course. >> he was waiting on you. you were the customer. you are always right. >> you are the host of the show. >> we're the host of the show we are employed by you. we think you look much cuter, bill. >> the tie didn't match. bill: we don't know who put that together. i wish we knew. >> who is the chimp wardrobe

bill: time now for "pinheads & patriots." in portland, oregon, a father and son were about to get off mass transit when disaster struck. somehow the 3-year-old boy got out, but the father didn't get out. there he comes. and the dad gets locked in the train, all right? and then goes away. the train leaves. now the boy's alone. you can imagine how fearful he was. but a woman comforted aden -- that's the boy's name -- until the dad could get back, quite sometime. the lady is still unidentified, but she is quite a patriot. on the pinhead front, say hello to martha stewart, commenting on her rival, rachael ray. >> she professed that she cannot bake. she just did a new cookbook which is a reedit of a lot of her old recipes, and that's not good enough for me. i really want to write a book that is a unique and lasting
thing, something that will really fulfill a need in someone's library. so she's different. she's more of an entertainer than she is with her bubbly personality than she is a teacher. she's a totally different kind of cook than i am. i don't know if she has a garden. i don't think so. bill: well, that sounds a little catty to us. martha stewart might be a pinhead. i don't have a garden, i'm afraid of dirt. we hope you go to bill o'reilly.com christmas holiday store. we're giving away this "we say commas" bumper sticker and bold fresh totes. you get a lot of free stuff, and we make your gift-giving easy and affordable. julie from england. joe from denver, colorado.
